Pricey, but what are you going to do...

The family loves Japanese food, what can we say. With scant few offerings of ethnic food establishments in the area one is limited in choice. Given the choice of two similar restaurants in town we will always choose this one. Always greeted promptly and there really isn't a bad seat in the... read more

Everytime we go we are not disappointed. Food is always fresh and good. They are quick to take your order and comes out pretty fast.

This restaurant has gone to hell in a handbasket! Terrible food and unfriendly staff! It used to be one of the best in town!! Food was so bad that my lunch partner had visions of herself vomiting on the table while she was eating......

My husband and I went there with another couple, who are friends, for a Thursday night dinner. We had a large variety of food from the menu that we all shared. The service was prompt and friendly. Everything we ate was enjoyable. Another great visit it was!

I was surprised and appreciative of this fine restaurant. It was my first time there and it really impressed me. I'm not big on Japanese food but really enjoyed the tempura dishes. The salad and soup bar was great and the service was quick and excellent. The food fantastic and the way the tables are set out makes it a... More

I order take out from here at least once a month and eat in every couple months. I have spent quite a bit of money and still return dispute their horrible service. This last time I went I figured I'd get a free meal was my birthday. I went the day prior and I was told no come back tomorrow.... More

JC Sakura has always been a local favourite of mine. I've been eating there regularly for over two years. When it opened I couldn't believe we had a decent sushi restaurant in the Sault and was impressed with the food, service and quality but over time it's been getting worse and worse. I've noticed a trend of declining staff on... More

But 3 days ago, we went there since my husband was craving for sushi again, the Salmon in the sushi was sooo thin, their maki rolls, salmon maki rolls had like a dot size salmon and lots and lots of rice...their rolls have more rice now compared to the...

Very good quality of food, and I like the addition of a salad bar. Service and time it takes food to arrive is okay. It would be nice if they listed the ingredients in each roll, because although I eat sushi on a regular basis, it's difficult to remember everything and I don't want to choose just anything in case...

Food was okay, just make sure you bring cash to pay bill. Either the waitresses are thieves or management is. They will lie and say the payment didn't go through, then charge you three times. When you return to show them extra charges, they will just smile and shrug.
